ZENITH – El Primero Stratos Flyback Rainbow

The love story between the heavens and the starry brand began over a century ago when Zenith began designing on-board equipment namely for aviation in the 1900s. At the request of the French air force, the brand designed the ultra-resistant Rainbow Flyback in 1997 for fighter pilots which in turn inspired the El Primero Stratos Flyback Rainbow in 2014. Housed in the steel 45.5mm case and armed with a rotating bezel protected by a black aluminium ring, the legendary self-winding El Primero movement brings to life the hours and minutes in the centre, small seconds (in 4 colours at 9 o’ clock), chronograph (red central seconds, 30 minute totalizer at 3 o’ clock and 12 hour totalizer at 6 o’ clock) and date (at 6 o’ clock). The Super LumiNova coating and different colours on the hands and Arabic numerals on the black dial make it easy to tell the time in any light. Price: 8,300 CHF
